Regardless of your political alligiance, I’d urge you to listen to this speech given by Ronald Regan in 1961. I found it rather chilling that it is so applicable today.
And, so pretty good quotes from President Regan as well:
“You and I can do a great deal… If you don’t, this bill will pass just as surely as the sun will come up tomorrow. And behind it will come other federal programs that will invade every area of freedom as we have known it in this country, until one day… we will awake to find that we have socialism.” – Ronald Reagan, U.S. President 1981-1989
“The one thing our Founding Fathers could not foresee…was a nation governed by professional politicians who had a vested interest in getting reelected.” – Ronald Reagan, U.S. President 1981-1989
“We do not face large deficits because American families are undertaxed; we face those deficits because the federal government overspends.” – Ronald Reagan, U.S. President 1981-1989
“Many Americans today, just as they did two hundred years ago, feel burdened, stifled, and sometimes even oppressed by government that has grown too large, too bureaucratic, too wasteful, too unresponsive, too uncaring about people and their problems.”
– Ronald Reagan, U.S. President 1981-1989
